One of the central goals of AAPLE is to enrich the lives of students and in turn have our students enrich the lives of the community. In-depth student involvement in nonprofit work that provides a specific benefit to the local community, is at the forefront of the AAPLE mission. Students gain an unforgettable personal fulfillment through giving back. These experiences and value structures will be carried with them throughout their lives.
AAPLE Students must complete a minimum of 200 hours of community service over four years. In addition, AAPLE students must participate in AAPLE service committees and all students must participate in one sustained service activity, preferably unique, where the student ultimately takes a leadership role. Students are asked to carve out an area of service leadership that is driven by their passions. We are proud to report that AAPLE graduates have completed more than 39,000 hours of community service to date.
